International Tax: All About Foreign Trusts

The Internal Revenue Service has become increasingly aggressive in penalty assessments against taxpayers failing to file required international information forms. Outside the FBAR, the largest information return exposures (as to financial penalties) come from failures to file Forms 3520.

This program will give detailed background on circumstances where the form is required, as well as cover applicable penalties. We'll then analyze how to best approach penalty mitigation/elimination for clients' assessed penalties.

Session Highlights:
  • Identify when a taxpayer has a foreign reporting obligation.
  • Who must file a Form 3520-A or ensure that a Form 3520-A is filed; 
  • When and where the Form 3520-A must be filed
  • Recognize the circumstances in which the form is required
  • Determine the applicable penalties
  • Evaluate how to best approach penalty mitigation/elimination for clients' assessed penalties
